Today we marched and risked arrest in dozens of cities across the country with the Poor People’s Campaign, telling the rich and powerful we know their secret:
Poverty is no accident — it’s something THEY created to keep us down.
Poverty is woven into the fabric of this country. It’s in schools still segregated in the year 2018; in relentless attacks on our rights to come together and unionize for better lives; in the prison pipeline bent on controlling Black and Brown bodies.
We marched today because it’s time to STOP fighting the poor and START fighting poverty. Stand with us by sharing this image on Facebook right now >>
